Tasted very grassy to me, like hay. Nice hops, but can't get over the dry grassiness. Pours a lovely orange with a finger of head, lacing stops pretty early in the pint. Expected more for the price.

-Bot. 08.02.17. consumed 11.10.17. in spiegelau ipa glass.

A: Macro-bubbles fill a tarnished orange body. A weathered white head is thick, creamy, and lasting. Thick stratified rings run down the vessel.

S: Juicy grapefruit juice and orange juice. Citrusy-pineapple hops, are wet and in good force. Light drying pine and toasted malts./bread. Tart lemons mingle about leaving a good lasting impression.

T: Spicy bite of grapefruit hops, wet and juicy, brings a good opening zing. Citrusy-pine and tropical notes bring some complexity. Some pineapple, tart lemons are settled against some dry toasted malt/bread backing. Light dry pine hops linger about.

M: Spicy and juicy mouthful is juice like, tart with a medium weight of malt. Good co2 support.

O: Overall a west coast ipa with some east coast tropical flair is wet and juicy with a high rate of drinkability. Solid outstanding appeal, leaves your tongue tickled with wet, juicy hops awaiting more.

This is an excellent beer I had on draft. Very nice complex flavor with strong fruity undertones. Not too bitter and yet hops right up.
